Art:  Art lessons at Ambrosoli are an exciting opportunity for children to discover a variety of creative possibilities such as painting, drawing, collage, creating three-dimensional art and much more. The art lessons are often linked to the IPC units being studied.  The children are taught to express themselves freely knowing that their work will be valued for its individuality and creativity.

Music:  Music is a fun session where the children learn how to play instruments, sing a variety of songs and listen to music from different eras and countries. Children compose music, accompany songs and learn how music can affect us. There are many special opportunities to celebrate music including class assemblies, key stage performances, the annual talent show and the International Schools’ music festival each year

In addition to class music lessons, children can have individual and group instrument lessons at an additional cost. Children are able to use a variety of instruments depending on the teachers available at Kampala Music School.  In the past we have offered lessons on the piano, trumpet, trombone, flute, violin and guitar. Any child interested in taking up a musical instrument should see the music teacher.

Computing:  There is a focus on computational thinking and creativity, as well as opportunities for creative work in programming and digital media. The introduction makes the three aspects of the computing curriculum clear: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL).  The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.

French: Bienvenuá Ambrosoli! French is taught in Ambrosoli as the chosen modern foreign language (MFL). It follows a framework incorporating the scheme of work provided by the English National Curriculum and teaching methods from Alliance Francaise. The main aim of teaching French is to develop children’s linguistic competence in a creative manner. A range of activities are planned to bring the language alive. These include games, songs, school trips, drama and art.  The school has an annual day to promote and celebrate French language.

PE:  PE aims to develop student’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. To ensure that this goal is realised each class attends two weekly PE lessons and one swimming lesson each week lead by specialist teachers.

PSHE:  All children have at least one timetabled session of PSHE each week covering relevant subjects which help to promote positive behaviour and effective learning.
